For dessert, build a fire in the sandstone firepit and roast marshmallows over the flames as laughter and twilight fill the air. In the chilly months, you will look forward to curling up aside the roaring fire with a good book, or sharing a movie with your loved ones on the flat-screen HD TV in the living room.
